“John has been teaching our children since September 2019 and we are really pleased with the lessons and with his ability to teach and engage with children. We know how difficult children can be sometimes, especially little ones, and John has been amazing at handling every situation. We definitely recommend piano lessons with John.”


My piano lessons are tailored to suit all ages and abilities, from complete beginners wanting to try the piano, to those already studying at a high level who are looking improve their skills. There are no fixed ways to learn piano because every person is different. I believe it is key to work with each student to find which method works best for them. All lessons are delivered from my home studio in Swindon and are available to both adults and children.

ABRSM music theory Grades 1-5

Musical theory, for some, presents a challenge. I can prepare students for music theory exams up to Grade 5, which they must pass to progress beyond ABRSM Grade 5 in classical piano performance.

Composition support for GCSE and A Level

Students studying GCSE or A Level music must have a practical understanding of composition. I can assist with the process of composition on any instrument, helping with creating ideas, musical form and scoring for solo instruments and ensembles.

Learn piano just for fun!

Not everyone wants to take exams, but I can still help those students to play the piano to a high standard using a range of pieces to suit their interests.

“My ten year old Daughter has been having piano lessons with John for around a year, which she absolutely loves! John interacts well with Scarlett, he is very friendly and engaging, but is also able to get her focus if she gets too excitable. John is very patient and will go over things as many times as she needs. He is always positive during lessons, but is also happy to tell Scarlett where she needs to improve/practise, he does this in such an encouraging way. (which for some, can be a hard balance to get right). We do lessons via Skype which works perfectly around busy family life. I would highly recommend anyone thinking of taking piano lessons to go with John, he is professional, friendly and listening to him play the piano is amazing!”
